Melodic, moody jazz
13 MP3 Songs
JAZZ: Weird Jazz, CLASSICAL: Contemporary
Described by Cadence magazine as a session-long study in contemporary lyricism, this collection of melodic pieces forges a place beyond time and genre, where melancholy is met with hope.
Arranged for two, three, and four instruments, the music features: Chris Cheek on tenor and soprano saxophones, Roberta Piket on piano, Rob Garcia on drums, and Stephan Crump on acoustic bass.
In his debut recording as a leader, Memphis native Stephan Crump displays the maturity and depth one would expect from a highly in-demand bassist on the New York jazz scene. More than just a bassist and a leader, Crump as a composer reveals a rare earnestness and polish. These tone poems, at once moody and optimistic, speak directly with our emotions.
